Rockford Education Association

[Log In]

Welcome!

The Rockford Education Association represents over 430 educators who work for the Rockford Public Schools. The REA is affiliated with the Michigan Education Association and the National Education Association.

As an organization dedicated to the principles of representative democracy, each building in the Rockford Public Schools District is entitled to one representative for its first 15 members and an additional rep for each 10 members above 15 to serve as a Building Representative. It is the duty of each representative to serve their building’s members as a confidant and advisor in labor-related issues, a liaison between the members they represent and the administration, and as a voting member of the REA Executive Council.

The Executive Council meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month, and it is there that the business of the Association is conducted on behalf of the members. It is often the REA building representatives who are most “in the know” about what is taking place behind the scenes in the district. The building rep is expected to hold brief meetings either in person or via e-mail to keep members informed and answer any questions they may have. As such, basic questions or concerns should always be brought first to the building representative.

In addition, the REA has an Executive Board elected by the membership to assist in making Association decisions. The Association President, Suzy Clements, is available at sclements@rockfordschools.org and RHS ext. 7347.
